VariousGolden State Funk – Impossibly Rare Funk From The Bay Area ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $5.99
They're not lying about the "impossibly rare" part of the title here – because most of the work on this set is previously unreleased – funky Bay Area gems recorded in the late 60s and early 70s, finally seeing the light of day on this collection! The music represents a much deeper current of soul than you might know from Sly & The Family Stone or some of the bigger bay area groups of the period – a really righteous batch of tracks that freak out nicely with a heady, jamming groove – one that's often heavy on the basslines and drums, but which also has a celebratory, party-hearty quality in the vocals and other instrumentation. A few artists here are familiar, but most are relatively obscure – and the biggest portion of this music has languished for years in the vaults of the Golden State Recorders studios of producer Leo Kulka. CD features 20 tracks in all – including "Super Chicken" by Ramona King, "Rock Steady" by Ruby Delicious, "Devil's Got Your Mind" by San Francisco TKOs, "Hearing Things" by Snooky & The Cosmic Flowers, "I've Gotta Groove" by Julio Zavalla, "Love Machine" by Alonzo Smith, "Poor Sad Child (parts 1 & 2)" by The Windjammers, "Are You Together For The New Day" by The Love Experience, "Can't Get Enough" by 87th Off Broadway, "House Party" by Wally Cox & The Natives, "I'm Glad I Got Over You" by Jeanette Jones, "Sweet Talk" by Marvin Holmes & The Uptights, and "Vida Blue (part 1)" by Jimmy Bee.

VariousKings Of Diggin – An Obscure Collection Of The Most Sought After Breaks Ever Recorded Compiled By Kon & Amir & DJ Muro ... CD
BBE (UK), 2006. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Possibly the best entry yet in BBE's Kings Of. . .series of broadly selected funk, soul, hip hop and more – featuring the rarest collection of grooves we've seen in the series by far – selected by mixtape legends Kon & Amir and fellow master compiler DJ Muro! Both CDs are mixed, and each runs north of an hour long – with Kon & Amir taking more of an archivist approach featuring longer tracks that run the gamut from rare Brazil, Latin, obscure funk, deep soul, and points beyond! Muro's set is just as impressively diverse, and features a much longer tracklist of shorter funky bits – tightly edited for hard-hitting effect. Many of the tracks on both sets are totally fresh to our eyes and ears – making Diggin one of our favorites in the series by default – but the deep reservoir of obscure funky music more than lives up to the refreshingly rare roster! CD1 features Kon & Amir's set, and the titles include "In My Life" by Matthew Larkin Cassell, "Caca A Raposa" by Azymuth, "A Vida" by Uniao Black, "Simbi" by Henri Pierre Noel, "Dazz" by Soul Dazz Band, "Pay Pay Pay (Kon edit)" b Master Story Tellor, "Soul Freedom" by Ray And His Court and more. Muro's set includes the tracks "The Fox" by Disco Fox", "Come Groove With Me" by Carl Marshall, "Flip A Coin" by World Wonders, "Soul Limbo" by Count Buffalo & His Rock Band, "Jerking Dog" by The Crowns, "Tema De Soninha" by IRP-3, "Let's Take A Break" by Milton Wright, "Worlds Of Tomorrow" by Telstars and much more!
